Choosing A Furniture KitA furniture kit is a collection of properly sized shelves coupled with a post assortment that is recommended for your specific model kiln. The shape, quantity and thickness are predetermined and based on the most common practices for that model.
The quantity of the posts in the assortments included with the furniture kit are based on the number of layers of shelves common in that model and include varied height posts to give you flexibility in loading.
If your situation is unique and you have very specific needs you can order all of these items separately to make your own kit. Here are some of the factors you will want to consider:
ShapeShelves can be round, multi-sided, square or rectangle. Round and multi-sided shelves are usually available in what is called ‚Äúhalf-shelves‚Äù. Half shelves are exactly what they sound like, they are half of a full shelf. People like them for several reasons.
- Provide a path for convection in the center of the kiln.
- Half the weight of a full shelf therefore easier on the back to load in the kiln.
- More flexibility in loading your kiln.
- Less likely to warp or crack than full shelves.
